This year in preschool, students in Mrs. Humphrey’s class have been learning a new classroom job. The medical person is an important part of our day. Each week two students get to decide if they will be a doctor or a nurse. Then during the day when a classmate has a small scratch, bump or even a bug bite the medical team helps them by placing a band aide on the injured body part. The students love this job. They are learning so many things: compassion, caring for others, being responsible with their trash, fine motor skills to open a band aide and how to ask others where it hurts.
It has been a great way to incorporate real world practices in our classroom. The students take such pride and joy in helping their friends.
